Sofi Tukker To Make Their iHeartRadio MMVAs Debut
They’ve been keeping us dancing with Apple ads and now Sofi Tukker is making their iHeartRadio MMVAs debut. Just announced as presenters, the exciting new EDM duo are set to hit the biggest block part of the year and bring their fresh and exciting energy to the show.
Sofi Tukker, made up of Sohpie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, have experience a meteoric rise. Releasing their first EP Soft Animals only two years ago, the group have already had three songs featured in ads for Apple, including their infectious “Best Friend,” which is featured in the ad for the iPhone X.
The duo has also already scored their first Grammy nomination in 2017 with their single “Drinkee,” which was also featured in the Jessica Williams film The Incredible Jessica James. This year, the pair will be vying for the Fan Fave Duo or Group award. You can cast your vote for them here.
Versatile in their sound, which combines elements of pop, dance, EDM, trance, and folk, Sofi Tukker released their first full length album Treehouse in April, which also features the singles “Batshit” and “Benadryl.”
Also just announced, singer Tyler Shaw and The Launch’s Elijah Woods and Jamie Fine will be getting the party started early as the official iHeartRadio MMVAs red carpet performers, with Loud Luxury as the official award show DJs.
Today’s new additions to the star-studded list of presenters include Madison Beer, Scott Helman, Francesco Yates, New City, The Reklaws, Craig McMorris, and Jus Reign.
